Passeio maravilhoso para fazer em Santiago. Não fui em outras vinicolas no Chile, mas acho difícil que sejam melhores que essa. Vale muita a pena a visita!

Stay in a beautiful property ... is worth the view! We did the classic tour, which cost 10000 pesos and have the option to be in Portuguese. The tour lasts more or less 1:30, is very interesting, the guide explains a little about the cultivation of grapes, wine production and wine history. In the end, it turns out tasting 3 wines and they give you a bowl of this. The tour has to be scheduled on the vinicola restaurant. Besides this, there are several other tour options, including bike rides. Besides the tour, there are other attractions, like a lovely diner for a cup of coffee, shop, restaurant and a Museum of pre-Columbian art (we don't know but it seems quite interesting). The restaurant is an attraction. It is located in the former headquarters of the farm and the architecture is unique of the time, you feel really on a farm at the beginning of the 20th century. The service is very good and wonderful food. The dishes are individual and are not very cheap, but it's worth it, and look great with one of the House wines, which are served by a restaurant for the price. The store sells, in addition to the wines, other products related to the topic. The price of wine is much cheaper when compared with the price in Brazil (less than half the price). The only downside is that vinicola restaurant gets a little away from the center of Santiago, but although a little time consuming, it is easy to reach. On their website, there is a detailed explanation of all the options to get there. On the way, we chose the subway + collective, which according to him is a shared taxi, but you have to get very lucky to have other people in the same time as you to share a taxi. In our case, we were two people and we were just ourselves. The price is fixed, regardless of the number of people. It costs more than the bus, but pays off because it's much faster. It took us about 1 hour from Baquedano station of until the vinicola restaurant. On the way back, we opted for the bus (which goes right at the entrance of the vinicola restaurant) and metro, but not recommend because it takes a long time, beer of 2 hours. There is also the option of hiring an agency to make the tour, which costs more than going on your own.show original

I really enjoyed having a focus more on production and characteristics of the wine, teaching about manufacturing, storage temperatures, aging and other information that I didn't know. Historical grape Carmenere told and explained about the Paris that I've never heard of. To save a hold on the tour of the site and went to the winery of public transportation. She is in the direction of Concha y Toro, but we must go to the metro station La Mercedez (approx. 700 pesos) and then take the bus 081 (approx. 650 pesos) which passes every 30 minutes. The entire trip takes between 1:30 and 2:00. Ask the driver help he will stop face the winery. On input it is possible to go from cart to the reception, where you will pay for the tour.
